“house boat trip, with johns boat tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Hi

would advise anyone who fancies the house boat trip to go ahead and book it, the whole experiance was superb
with a great 3 man crew who were very helpfull and in the know with the wonderfull wild life you come across
on this trip, all food is included as are the drinks ( except wine ). we had a bash at fishing and caught 3 catfish
took some great photos and enjoyed a double bed to sleep on when it was time to retire for the night.
the food was very nice and the drinks kept flowing all trip.
the cost of the trip is about £62 per person and worth every penny and lasts a full 24 hours

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Had a lovely time, very relaxing. The staff and food excellent, there is 3 staff and they cant do enough for you, all the food and refreshments are included within the price.. The rooms are basic but clean. Victor the captain! had a good knowledge of animals and local birds, and he found us 3 crocodiles!!! If you want a nice relaxing trip then this it. We will be booking again for next year.

“Dolphin Cruize !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We went for a Dolphin Cruize with Johns Boat Tour in Jan '13. It was a nice experience. Didi manage to see few Dolphins and also an opportunity to swin in the Ocean. The crew was friendly and nice. But do note that the lunch they offer is very ordinary and not worth the time they make ppl wait at the beach.

Over-all a gud experince and btr dan the dolphin trip tht the local boats take from baga and other beaches. They do charge more dan des local boats but the money is worth it.

“Overnight houseboat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Four of us did this trip at the beginning of December, we were a little apprehensive at first when we were dropped off, but that all changed when we saw the boat. We hadn't been on board 10 minutes after the safety talk and the gin and tonics were flowing.Food and drinks (wine extra) were all included in the price of the tour.
The Captain was very informative about the river, birds and all the wildlife. The food was excellent and lots of it,the rooms clean with clean towels and dressingowns. The one negative was there was only a curtain between the bedroom and ensuite toilet other than this we couldn't fault the trip at all, 100% relaxation.
